monday december 13th-
at 1:53am mars moves out of scorpio and into sagittarius, shifting the will and drive from water to fire, yin to yang, depths and to heights. mars in sadge likes his freedom and he loves to wander the world and explore! we can channel our energy into travel, teaching, learning, exploring and expanding right now and in the coming 6 weeks of mars journey through this sign. we just need to be aware of the shadow of mars in sagittarius: doing/pursuing too much with no sense of limit or discipline. too much of a good thing can get out of hand. reigning in our desires in healthy ways is key to self mastery.
mercury moves out of sagittarius and into capricorn at 9:52am, shifting the conscious mind and intellect from fire to earth, yang to yin, expansive to contractive. mercury in capricorn is serious, focused and responsible in communication. he thinks before he speaks and is rooted and grounded in his perception. just be aware of the shadow side of mercury in capricorn- only believing what you can see, touch, taste, smell or hear. this can also express as pessimism, cynicism or depression. balance is key.
at 5:12pm mercury at 0 capricorn quincunxes the mean north node at 0 gemini, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the node of destiny and evolution. the north node is in the sign of mercury for one more week! being aware of thoughts, ideas and perceptions that you have today that are blocking you from seeing things from a new perspective and/or coming back to beginner’s mind is key. mercury in capricorn can think he knows it all- but the north node in gemini reminds us that the moment you think you know it all you have closed your mind. the mind is like a parachute- it works better when it’s open ;)
mars cojoins the mean south node at 0’28 sagittarius at 6:19pm, bringing the FINAL activation of the south node in sagittarius (where he has been since june 2020). mars is activating and perhaps exacerbating the karma of the south node in sadge- hubris, self righteousness, ‘i am right’ and ‘you are wrong’ perspectives. shadow sadge is always the teacher, never the student. shadow sadge wants more, faster, now and is seen in super size me, selfie culture. mars is bringing Light to what is karmic, stagnant and stuck- but it’s up to us to deal with it, clear it and/or bring it to completion so we can move into the next cycle with less baggage. this can be a trigger for anger, rage or war- so be aware of tendencies to be impulsive, reactive and explosive. at the same time be aware of stuffing anger- as it will convert to depression, illness and passive aggression. right relationship to anger is key. (mars parallels the south node tomorrow at 2:30am so a super aspect unfolds between these two overnight! this amplifies the energy! pay attention to your dreams for messages from the Unconscious)
tuesday december 14th-
mercury in capricorn and mars in sagittarius trigger retrograde ceres in gemini from 4:50am to 5:05pm (mercury quincunxes, mars opposes)- as ceres heads to cojoin the north node (12/20). with mars on the south node yesterday and mars opposite ceres today we have an opposition with the will and warrior and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess while on the nodal axis of destiny (ceres) and fate (mars). mars opposite ceres can bring up intensity in home family situations, with parents, children and childhood past. it can also bring up things around the environment, safety, security, food and nourishment. the impulsive will, drive and tendency to anger is at odds with our needs for safety and security- and this can stir the pot in family dynamics and on the world stage. the right mix of nurture for self and others is a precarious balance right now.
wednesday december 15th-
at 4:33am the sun in sagittarius trines retrograde eris in aries, harmoniously aligning the conscious self and ego with the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. sun/eris is great for taking charge and taking action! being willing to see the Truth, speak the Truth and uncover the Truth is key! accessing the firey energy of transformation and change is recommended.
retrograde uranus in taurus trines juno in capricorn at 6:15pm, linking the Rebel and Revolutionary with the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. this is great for bringing new energy into relationships and partnerships. get a new lease on life! embrace change! as both are in earth signs this can be great for work, career, abundance and finance. think outside of the box and be willing to let go of what does not work so that something new can come in.
thursday december 16th-
the sun in sagittarius semisquares saturn in aquarius at 7:02pm, creating tension from the expansive “don’t-fence-me-in” sagittarius sun and the Lord of Boundaries and Limits. from today through tomorrow the sun makes minor aspects and triggers the saturn/uranus square- the last of 3 squares between these two is happening next week. sun in sagittarius versus saturn is chomping at the bit to be given free reign. this will horse (sagittarius) does not want to be corralled or told what to do. finding balance between freedom and limits, passion and discipline, vision and the capacity to bring that vision into manifestation by way of hard work is key.
friday December 17th-
the sun in sagittarius sesquiquadrates retrograde uranus in taurus at 3:19pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Rebel and Revolutionary. both sagittarius and uranus have energy in common- they both crave and demand freedom. this can be great for doing things differently and embracing change- but this is a tense aspect so it can also exacerbate our need for freedom to the point of irresponsibility, impulsivity and inability to see things through or be committed. balance is key!
saturday december 18th-
at 6:35pm mercury in capricorn squares statioanry about to go direct chiron in aries, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Wounded Healer. mercury/chiron brings up old wounds and pain in communication and thinking. it’s super important to THINK before you speak right now. therapy and any kind of inner work/shadow work can be supportive right now as we delve into the wounding that runs us from the subconscious. communications can get intense so be sure to be kind because everyone you meet is fighting a battle. but also be sure to have clear boundaries and stand up for yourself in healthy ways. it’s all about a balance ;)
at 8:36pm PST we have the full moon at 27’29 gemini, marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began on 12/3 with the total solar eclipse. that eclipse was conjunct the Great Attractor (read the Lunar Insight for the full download) and this full moon is opposite the Galactic Center/Gate of God and conjunct the Gate of Man- so this lunar cycle is potent with these powerful Source Points connected to Cosmic Consciousness. The Galactic Center (GC) is the center of our Milky Way Galaxy, while the Great Attractor (GA) is a point that 30+ galaxys are rushing towards as though being pulled in/attracted by it (hence the name). the GA warps time and space and bends Light with it’s massive gravity. philip sedgwich says the GA may be a direct personificaiton of the Creatrix itself! the GC could be seen as the Source/creatrix of our galaxy- while the GA is the Source/creatrix of all galaxys and all life. i call the GC the Mother, the SGC (the Super Galactic Center which is another point) the Grand Mother and the GA is the Great Grand Mother ;) with these Mother/Creatrix/Galactic points activated all month we have some BIG ENERGIES incoming. be open to seeing Truth in a way you have not seen it before. are we willing to ‘risk the factuality of our own beliefs in the ineterest of pure knowledge’? this is a month to be willing to ASK QUESTIONS and be with the question rather than quickly pursue the answer. the Gate of God (GC/27 sagittarius) and the Gate of Man (27 gemini) are the ways into and out of this galaxy. they are star gates/portals. before we had a more patriarchal take on these gates they were the Gate of the Father/God and the Gate of the Mother/Goddess. they are the gate we come in through (through the Mother’s womb) and go back out of (back to the Father). this full moon is revealing BIG TRUTHS- but it might also be revealing where you thought you knew the Truth but you didn’t. be open minded and curious right now. the path to knowing is being willing to not know. “God/Goddess/All That Is- show me the way!” for more info on this potent Full Moon check the Lunar Insight posted a few days before the full moon is exact.
sunday cecember 19th-
at 2:36am venus stations retorgrade at 26’29 capricorn, bringing the Goddess of Love and Beauty into her Underworld Descent. venus entered from end shadow on 11/17- so from then until now we have had the first pass preview of her Underworld journey. from now until 1/29/22 we have her full descent and from then until 3/1/22 we have her back end shadow. what is so powerful about this venus retrograde is she triggers the pluto/eris squqare three times- and she does so tightly during her station so that from 12/7-12/30 we have venus conjunct pluto and square eris TWICE. when a planet comes to standstill making a powerful aspect you can consider it massively amplified. so this is not an aspect that has a week or so window- it’s really a month long (all of december). venus retrograde is a time to reevaluate our relationships, finances, values, self worth and self love. based on what we see/find it can be a time to realign or release things that no longer serve. with this venus retrograde in capricorn we can be reevaluating our work in the world, business, career, any ways we operate from a patriarchal paradigm that does not honor the body, emotions, feelings and the need for rest. it’s a time to question traditions, what we have always done, and what we thought we be enduring forever but is clearly showing us is dying and perhaps even toxic. it’s a big descent!!! i will have a blog and/or video up soon so check the main page of my website where it will be pinned once it’s up.
chiron stations direct 8’26 aries at 8:32am, making the Wounded Healer the most powerful planet(oid) in the sky. our biggest wounds and pain around rejection, acceptance, self-worth, assertion, anger, self focus and the masculine be up right now. but there is an equal possibility for seeing through new eyes, gaining new insight and awareness regarding the past, and healing wounds that have been with us for a very long time. with chiron in the sign of mars we are being asked to heal our relationship to the masculine. if we are overly aggressive, selfish and conflict oriented OR if we have a hard time standing up for ourselves, we stuff our anger and are codependent- whichever end of the spectrum we are on we are being asked to find better balance. be aware that big wounds can be up today and the week surrounding the chiron station. instead of defaulting to repression, aggression or depression- instead stand in the chironic energy and allow it to open you up, deepen you and take you closer to your essence and the Truth of your Soul.
at 4:31pm the sun in sagittarius sextiles jupiter in aquarius, linking the conscious self and ego with the planet of expansion and abundance! the sun is in the sign of jupiter so this aspect is enhanced in positive ways. this is a great time to be optimistc, take chances, travel, take a course and/or expand your mind! enjoy life and give thanks for what you have. gratitude goes a long way in attracting more goodness and Light :) with jupiter in aquarius it’s a great time to be in community with like minded individuals who have common vision and ideals. have some fun!
have a blessed week…
